Great wait staff and the food is great. Marina is very accommodating if you're coming for lunch.
After several stays at the condos right next door, we finally tried Rae's. What a gem! From the person who seated us to our exceptional server, Thabi, we were treated like royalty. The drinks and wine were fantastic - and the food! We had fettuccini alfredo and pesto penne pasta, both with chicken, and they were fabulous. Beautiful view and great atmosphere. We're going back tonight and this will surely be a must for us on future visits to Fort Myers Beach!
Loved bongos. I am normally not a big fan of hotel restaurants but I had awesome service and the best salad ever here back in March. First, Cheryl. Incredibly personable, kind, great at interacting with my kids. We loved her energy and as the coronavirus was settling in she was such a positive person to interact with. Secondly, the salmon chopped salad was the special on our first day. The salmon was cooked to absolute perfection...We ate out at the fancy places and your tourist traps downtown... and bongos food was awesome in comparison. Good job everyone!
Great poolside bar and restaurant. Lots of good food options and drink of the day.
Bongos is your go to place here at Pink Shell. The food is fresh and they have a good selection. Try the shrimp tacos, chop chop salad or grouper sandwich.
